Okay, this seems like it should work, but I know that it ought not too. Please tell me what you think. My idea is for a device which will be able to perpetually produce hydroelectric power. It works based on the ideas of cappilary action. Start with a large pool of water, and take a whole freaking ton of small tubes which water will travel up by capillary action. Have the water travel up the tubes and then form a new pool higher up, where a new batch of capillary tubes will be waiting to suck that water higher up, and the cycle goes on untill you reach a sufficient height. Here you cause the pool which has accumulated at the top level to fall off over an edge, go down and strike a rotor which works the same as any hydroelectric plant rotor works. After it strikes this the water returns to the original pool and the process repeats. And voila! (pretty sure that's spelled wrong) you have a perpetual energy generator! So tell me what you think!?!? I think the flaw to the idea is the part where the water comes out of the top of the cappillary pipes to make a new pool. But what do you think?
